So much, and yet, so little going on

So, I'm not really good at posting pictureless blogs....I like for things to be visually intriguing for you guys, but the flash on my camera is temporarily out of service, which means I can't document the many things that are going on. Hopefully my words will be sufficient for now.

We got a new house!!! We've been in a cute (but very tiny) apartment since we got married and it was impossible to store everything in it. We had to get a storage unit and still had no room for anything. Who doesn' t put closets in their house? Anyway, our new house is a 2 bedroom Pahlisch house in Redmond and it comes with community pool use so for those of you who wanted to visit us before but didn't because we didn't have a 2nd bedroom and you would have had to sleep on our airmattress in the living room, you are welcome to come sleep in a real bed in your own room and swim in our pool!
I will get pictures of the place up as soon as I can. I love it!

I finally broke down and told Jim he could get cable. With that, he also got to buy a nice plasma TV. I'm really weird about TV. I didn't have one growing up and while many might see that as strange, you're forced to find other ways to entertain yourself, which in my opinion, is a good thing. Anywho, I do love to watch Beaver football (no comment on last night's game) and some other major shows (The Office, Lost etc.) so I will be happy to have the cable too as long as I have the discipline to veg all day long.

Jim, after being gone for the entire month of August, was home for 2 days (thankfully to help me move) and now he's off again for another 6 to bow hunt with Phil, Jesse and Mitch in the Steens. I told him if he doesn't bring back some meat, he shouldn't bother coming home! Watch, he'll shoot a bear and I won't know what to do with it!

It's Friday and Labor Day weekend, which means 3 days off!!! I'm heading out to Camp Sherman for the weekend where I will be relaxing on the river, feeding the chipmunks and deer and thinking about how awesome life is.

Hope you all have a wonderfully long weekend!

I'm very excited for pictures and to see it in person sometime. Also, I'm very jealous of your Camp Shermanventuring this weekend. Sadness.

PS...I didn't have a TV growing up either....I liked it.
